GoFundMe page for Oregon hero Chris Mintz tops 1/2 million dollars in 24 hours

mintzIf it’s possible for a feel-good story to emerge from the tragic shooting in Oregon that saw ten people die, including the gunman who was killed by police, it would be the story of Army veteran Chris Mintz.

And the generosity of the American people.

The vet is being hailed as a real life hero after being shot seven times while charging to block a door to prevent the crazed gunman from entering the room, according to the New York Daily News.

His aunt, Wanda Mintz, said after being shot several times, Mintz cried out to the shooter, “It’s my son’s birthday!” — Oct. 1 was his son’s sixth birthday — but the killer showed no mercy, shooting him two more times.

Miraculously, Mintz survived!

“He just tried to do the right thing,” the aunt said of her nephew. “That’s just how he is. If he sees someone who needs help, he just helps. He just tried to intervene.”

Obama forgot to include someone on his school
shooting blame list – and it didn’t go unnoticed!

In addition to seven gun shot wounds, Mintz somehow broke both his legs, prompting his cousin, Derek Bourgeois, to create a GoFundMe page to help pay for the medical bills, the International Business Times reported.

“Yesterday, my cousin Chris Mintz was shot 7 times while trying to protect others from the gunman at Umpqua Community College,” Bourgeois wrote. “He is a father, a veteran, a student, and now, he’s a hero.”

“While Chris is not the type of person to ask for it, he is going to need all of the help he can get while he recovers!” he added. “Myself and many family members have been swamped with requests for us to set up a GoFundMe page, so this is us fulfilling that request, and we appreciate your concerns and assistance.”

The page had a modest goal of $10,000, but as of Saturday morning, less than 24 hours after being set up, it had already topped half a million dollars — $570,176 to be exact.

It’s safe to say that in these troubling times, America still loves a hero. God Bless you Chris Mintz, and may the donations continue to flow.

    Obama is probably very ticked off that this money is not going to the family of the murderer that intentionally targeted Christians.

    1. VT Patriot says:

      Perhaps Omuslime can start a page for them and be the first donor. He could throw in his Nobel peace prize to start it off.

      1. Kenneth Clark says:

        That Nobel money was ashes before it hit the bank account real good by Michelle, the Mother in law and the girls.

    Thanks for the link. I am so proud of this young man and everyone who has donated to him and the others. Chris is an amazing hero and I hope his beautiful son grows up knowing that and will forever be proud of his father.

    So very odd that Obama is ALWAYS on the side of the wrongdoers.

    1. erleebird says:

      Do you think Obummer will invite him to the White House????? HUh!

      1. Marilyn Z says:

        This will take some serious research…NOT!

    2. tedlv says:

      It isn’t surprising if you know that 0bama is a racist Christian and Jew hating moslim. Now, no surprise.

      1. Marilyn Z says:

        Sorry…being a tad facetious there.

        Nevertheless, you would think he would get it right once in a while yet he never does. He is like an obstinate child….you think once in a while he would be right, but will always do the opposite of what he should do.

    3. OPAS says:

      “ODD???” There’s nothing ‘odd’ about, I will stand with Muslims”.

  4. Jimmie Robinson says:

    Gofundme is also glad for the donations…They get 8% plus tax…

    1. John Campbell says:

      Not that I’m aware of. There’s only a 30 cent per donation charge. I have a GoFundMe page because I’m disabled and in danger now of losing our home. If you know more about this “8%” thing than I do please let me know.

      1. TBW says:

        I just hope its really his family with his best interest at heart…

        1. John Campbell says:

          That’s a horrible thought. If it’s not I sure hope there’s something in the legal system to go after any fraudsters.

          1. Marilyn Z says:

            I think if there were a problem with that site, we would have heard about it long ago.

      2. Marilyn Z says:

        Jimmie is right:


        While it’s free to create and share your online fundraising campaign, GoFundMe will deduct a 5% fee from each donation that you receive. Since our fee is deducted automatically, you’ll never need to worry about being billed or owing us any money. A small processing fee of about 3% will also be deducted from each donation. Please see Pricing & Fees for more info.

        Nevertheless, the recipients can still get a lot of money I have seen some amazing donations for various projects…even commercial ones.

        1. John Campbell says:

          I didn’t notice this. Thanks for the info. Not that it’s going to be something to be concerned about anyway. He’s looking as a half a mil at present which should get him through hospital expenses. Likely a lot of rehab time though.

          1. Marilyn Z says:

            This has caused a lot of people to dislike this particular fund, but it seems fair enough to me.

            John, are you not eligible for social security disability? They don’t give it out easily, but I have a cousin-in-law, a real bum, who got it by pushing them long enough. It took a while, but once he did, he got all that back money plus his four kids each got a good pile of cash. Maybe you need a lawyer that specializes in disability cases…one who gets a percentage with nothing up front.

            Good luck to you and Gabriela.

          2. John Campbell says:

            At present I get State disability but it’s not enough to cover the basics and runs out in March. In the mean time I have to go in for more probing, prodding, an MRI, and it seems in the process they now may have found me to have skin cancer. Like I needed anything else to go with it. What they’re trying to do is get all the required testing and examination done on my spine before submitting for federal disability, which appears to be a given granted the obvious thus far, but federal disability is worse than State and doesn’t fund as much as State does. That leaves us pretty much done. The only thing I’ve found out about the GoFund thingy aside from now learning the additional charges, is without circulation no one sees it. Looks like a have to find a way to get it circulated on Facebook pages since that’s what they seem to associate it to on their website.

    The people in Charleston were given 29 million dollars what about this time Obama or are the people to white for your gay black communist muslim personality.

    1. wonduh says:

      Sorry for their deaths but all of them totaled would not earn that amount in two lifetimes. Yet, the Potus saw fit to give them your tax money? Why? Because they were black; no other reason. He just rubbed it in the face of taxpayers. Now how will the IRS treat them re: taxes? That’s another story the news media will not investigate.

      1. Marilyn Z says:

        Our taxpayers should never be on the hook for tragedies. Something like gofundme is the way to go. Let people put their money where they want it. Tax dollars should never go to charity or for things like this.

    2. tedlv says:

      The Christians killed were white, so there will be no attention from 0bama, who hates Christians and Jews.

  6. Nana says:

    Hell, this guy probably doesn’t WANT to go to the White House! BTW, has Obama tried to change the name to Black House, yet?

  7. Brian_Richard_Allen says:

    …. ten people, including the “gunman,” died ….

    “Gunman?” First of all the malignant-envy-driven malignant narcissist that perpetrated this fascissocialist rite-of-passage mass-murder was many things but none of them was “a man.”

    And, second, what is it with pretender “writers” that you can toss off “gunman,” with ease but cannot say fireman or policeman or fisherman, chairman or any other kind of man? Cat got your balls?

    The father of the as*hole blames guns. Well I blame the dad for a pi** poor upbringing. End of story and lawyers need to go after the dad now.
